I recently installed my first Wine application in Fedora 12. This was the result:
Download spec file from http://pfrields.fedorapeople.org/packages/SPECS/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.1.spec
(don’t use the default corefonts spec file. This spec file has been modded to get around a no-longer-needed dependency on chkfontpath)
Install Pre-requisites and follow instructions at http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/ but use the above spec file.
yum install rpm-build yum install cabextract yum install ttmkfdir yum install wget
Enable Wine Font Smoothing (you need to do this or the font’s will be chunky and ugly)
Look for the English version of the wine font smoothing script at the bottom of the above mentioned page.
I also received an SELinux error “SELinux has prevented wine from performing an unsafe memory operation.” when installing the application but this did not prevent it from installing so I left it alone. However it seems I have to try and start the application twice before it will launch but not sure of a fix on this as yet.
